7:10 am
head through the rest of the morning show. i think by the time we're off the air, we should be clear on the radar. in fact, south of town, not a whole lot going on. aful ha hour ago, i thought we were completely done with the rain in the south shore. one loan shower popped up. marshfield between scituate and plymouth, a little bit of light rain in the next couple of minutes. that should be it, barring anything else popping up. the rain a little more solid from lanesboro down towards sudbury. towards lynn and gloucester here in the next half hour. zoom back out, the back of this on the other side of amherst. another hour, hour and a half for rain north of boston. but that should be about it. temperaturewise everybody is above freezing. 39 in keene, 43 in bedford. 50 in new bedford and, in fact, a lot of 50s on the southern fringes of our map here and going to see those 50s spread north ward as we head throughout the day. the rain showers this morning
7:11 am
the air on the other side of that warm front is in the 50s. as that warm front lifts north, the rain starts to come to an end, we'll see cloudy skies during the day and temperatures sore up into the 50s as that warm front rolls through. a break in action in the middle part of the day, and cold front dinner time. if you need to get anything done today, do something outdoors, do it in the middle of the day. generally cloudy but peaks of sunshine. that is the key to our forecast. if we do get sunshine in the middle of part of the day, not out of the question the we could get into the 60s. 61 is the record in boston. not out of reach. around dinner time, here comes that cold front. cold front with spotty hit or miss showers. those will be in and out of here fairly quickly. wind shift out to the northwest. north westerly wind will usher
7:12 am
this december. in fact, mid to upper 30s, about average this time of year. a little breezy will definitely feel chilly monday afternoon. next storm system just in time to move in, likely will begin as snow. there you see the timing on your screen. 2 a.m. tuesday morning, snow continuing be and that continues into the morning hours. expect a messy commute tuesday morning just about everywhere. now, at some point during the late morning or early afternoon hours, we'll see that snow change over to sleet, freezing rain and then all rain for most of us. could linger around some wintery weather for western mass. southern vermont. pretty late in the day. i think most everyone will see eventually that snow change over to rain for everyone late tuesday evening. how much snow we get, depends on where that change over happens. here's my best guess, immediate boston area, probably about 1 to 2 inches.

7:13 am

7:34 am
takes the rain with it. the temperatures will sore into the 50s later on this afternoon. then a cold front arrives. with that cold front another round of rain showers likely right around dinner time. and that cold front will usher in probably the coldest air we've seen so far this month of december. and that will be the setup for our next storm system. this is the storm system that will be impacting us on tuesday. the one right now in texas brought tornados to the dallas area tuesday. on the east side of the system. that's where you get the risk for severe weather. another round possible in dallas again today were on the backside of it. got some snow and blizzard warnings for parts of oklahoma. that will be arriving here as we head into our tuesday. in the meantime, look for peaks of sunshine, maybe milthsz part of the day, another shower around dinner time. cold air starts to move in overnight tonight and that cold air with us tomorrow. snow showers begin as that storm system moves in texas east. the timing right around 2 a.m. on tuesday.
7:35 am
messy everywhere. white and blue indicates the snow. so i'm expecting a messy commute for everybody tuesday morning. at some point tuesday, late morning or early afternoon, that snow will begin to change over to maybe sleet freezing rain and then all rain just about everywhere. but when that change over happens and exactly where that change over happens, determines how much snow we're going to get. which is why you're going to see a wide range of forecasts over the next couple of days. we use computer models to help us out. gss is one of them. and consequently indicating more snow and less rain. in that days we could get, 4, 6 inches in the boston area and gss model change over to rain never really happens northern worcester county to southern vermont. those areas could get a foot or more if that were the case. here's a computer model that says the opposite. this computer model says mostly rain event and quickly change
7:36 am
consequently we don't get much snow at all were maybe an inch or two in boston even cooler spots worcester county and southern vermont probably won't get that much snow. what do i think? i'm thinking 1 to 2 inches in boston. much less for the south coast the cape and islands. but west of 128 could be the first first plowable snow of the season. meantime, temperatures in the upper 50s. peaks of sunshine during the middle part of the day could get up to the low 60s in the middle part of the day. tomorrow looks dry but snow beginning tuesday morning changing to rain tuesday afternoon. that's the snow to watch in the tuesday forecast. >> eric: could have money coming your way if you use sprint or verizon. you'll have until monday to claim refunds for unauthorized third party texts. they were used in a practice called cramming. both carriers agreed to pay $158

7:59 am
waltham and these are moving east headed towards gloucester and lynn and that's about it. a little bit of light rain towards the north shore and going on. that's the only thing showing up on radar. many areas reporting a little bit of light mist. it doesn't show up on radar but does on the advise siblthd map. really loosing visibility in some areas this morning. keep that in mind. do expect that to change dramatically. 45 in boston. 50 in plymouth. 55 in the vineyard. and these 50s have been kind of inching further and further north. that will continue. all part of a warm front. the 50s are on the other side of the warm front. as that warm front lifts north. skies could peak up a little bit. more importantly, that warm weather starts to spread this way. so temperatures will sore up into the 50s here.
8:00 am
right behind that, a cold front. that rolls in around dinner time. on the other side of that cold front is legitimately cold, probably the coldest we've seen so far this month. here's the warm front. pushings with that, the future cast, how the cloud cover should improve, sunshine possible middle part of the day. depending how much sun, if we see any, should get up into the mid 50s, maybe even low 60s. degrees. that's not entirely out of the question. auto here comes the front later on today around dinner time. with that front spotty showers, those should clear out quickly. already by this evening, clear out of here. winds off to the west and that wind will pick up brief north westerly wind will usher in the cooler weather and you'll notice that early tomorrow morning. low 30s when you're waking up. and not much of a were with a up at all on your monday.

8:02 am
keep in mind that temperatures in the forments. on shore wind earlier in the day. areas in the coastline should see that change over from snow to rain fairly quickly. west of 128, though, could see those numbers really start to increase, 3, 4, 5 inches not out of the question. this could be the first plowable snow areas west of 128. and that's where we could really see some significant snow, upper vermont upper 60s, peaks of sunshine, middle part of the day. second part of rain around din irtime. breezy and dry tomorrow. and the day to watch will be tuesday. stay tuned. >> heather: all right. we will. and new details coming out this morning about one of the men who carried out the paris terrorist attacks. now people are coming forward saying there were warning signs ahead of time. actually months before and no one acted. coming up, the accusations that

round two coming later today. spring around gloucester, that's about it for now. not showing up on radar is the dense fog we kind of missed out there reducing visibility. visibility only down to half mile in worcester and plymouth south, more widespread, a little more humidity and not coincidentally warmer air. 57 in new bedford, 52 in hyannis. 40s everywhere else. 50s will be spreading further north late morning hours. do think we'll see improvements in the foggy dreary weather that's out there right now. but only slight improvements. might get a few he can pas of sunshine in the middle part of the day. but still overall a mostly cloudy day. now. west of the warm front. that warm front moving north. will take the rest of the rain with it. also help to bring that warmer weather in here. only briefly. arrives. that cold front brings another round of showers probably right
8:26 am
that cold front much colder air filters in here beginning tone the of the cooler weather begins tomorrow and tomorrow afternoon really on the chilly side. that will be the setup for our next storm system. this one currently impacting texas. another round of it in dallas. on the backside of that the air is much colder. that's why we're seeing blizzard oklahoma. tuesday. a lot of moisture, the gulf of mexico with this system, the question is how much will it fall as snow. and how much will fall as rain when it gets here. not expecting the severe weather but are expecting the snow. in terms of timing look for that to begin after midnight. morning. appeared that snow continues as we head into the tuesday morning commute. there you can see the color coding here. the blueish color would be snow and that's pretty much everyone on tuesday morning. expect it to a be messy tuesday morning commute. at some point later in the day, that should change over to sleet, freezing rain and then all rain as we head into the afternoon hours.
8:27 am
mass. southern vermont where the change over doesn't happen until late in the day. eventually everyone sees that change over to rain and then comes to an end on late tuesday evening. how much snow we get total depends on when that change over happens. we've got a lot of different opinions on when that happens were one of out computer models, normally is s fairly reliable. this is mostly a snow event, it sates and change over happens late in the day, could mean 4, 5, 6 inches across the boston area, southern vermont, where the change over may not happen at all. that could see up to a foot or maybe more. that's one possibility. here's another possibility. our european model forecast also usually fairly reliable in the wintertime. this saying just the opposite. this one saying mainly a rain event. that the snow will be only briefly tuesday morning, in that case, 1 to 2 inches in boston. only about to 4 inches in southern vermont.
8:28 am
considering the ground is really warm after recent record temperatures and that the water temperatures are still warm and on shore wind, i am going with the lower estimates there. i think maybe 1 to 2 inches of snow briefly in the boston area on tuesday morning before quickly changing over. i do think areas best of 128, likely the first plowable snow of the season. peaks of sunshine here and there this afternoon. easily see a few more 60s across the map. that will be brief. tomorrow much colder. mid 20s tuesday morning. warming up to about 40 tuesday afternoon. snow changing over to rain, the question is how quickly will that happen? stay tuned we'll be updating that forecast a lot in the next couple of days. >> eric: if you're stuck inside you might want to check at your cell phone bill. you might have money coming your
